This show has grown on me especially
after listening to the entire 3 night run.
Check out the beat count
and band banter for B.I.O.D.T.L
(Pretty sure the set ends after Beat it on down the line.
Even so majority of tunes this night played in the 1st set?)
Also agree with:

I have had this show on tape for years. I always suspected it might be a little slow, but now hearing this I am of the suspicion that the boys just had some really good candy that night, and were just having a great time. THAT much is evident. As for the speed of the playback, I LOVE it slow. Slow, funky and probably my favorite all-time show. Every song is right-on and so dynamic; if the term "funk" could ever be applied to the boys, it does so here more than anywhere. To me, THIS is the Dead at their peak. (Weaned as I was on bootlegs, the sound quality doesn't bother me - all I hear is a ROCKIN' show!)

This is one of my favorite Easy Winds. Just fantastic - Bobby is ON during the jam and you can really hear him well. It does sound a tad slow.

70 is one of my favorite years and this is one of MANY fantastic shows.

Subject: Great show! classic 1970 stuff
Getting all those sounds from Workingmans Dead and American Beauty only happened for a short window. Darn near a 5 * show!
I believe the sould issues are, to my ear, some of the songs are dragging a little slow, the opposite of the '66 Chipmunk sound phenomenon. I sped up Cold Rain and Snow, Easy Wind, Minglewood, BIODTL, Casey Jones and it made a world of difference. 1.033 to 1.108 is all I pushed them up. Maybe I am just personal meddling with the art, but I liked how they sounded. Candyman Morning Dew and Chinacat might also benefit from the speed up. Of course by 1978, all the songs were slowed down...

I wish they had played this tune alot more, this is my favorite recording of this rarity.
I've had it a dogs age...

It would've made a cool set opener for a decade, IMHO.

Play it loud.

I know the band was never impressed with their Till' the Morning Comes, but it's worth saying it's alright considering it was done( in essence )only a hand full of times.


And electric Friend of the Devil.

I put a 5 because of Big Railroad Blues.

Subject: Good Show
Some of the songs start out a bit clunky but pay off with real vocal ferocity and payoff jams. Amazing "Easy Wind", starts out stumblin' a bit but kicks down some sweet harmonica and a mind' bogglin guitar trip.
